Cannot connect to Server from Program Neighborhood

Hi,

I am using Metaframe Presentation Server 4.0 and ICA Client 9.0. I have put a server in the DMZ zone and I can run browse all the published apps from the LAN, even if I connect to the external IP. When I switch my laptop to the other network, where I am also in DMZ and all the ports are opened, I cannot connect nor browse applications. It is only possible to browse list of published apps with TCP/IP + HTTP network protocol selection, but still it is impossible to run them. I am using Windows Server 2003. Please help.

Have you configured the server to return an alternate address?  i.e. the LAN address which is configured as an alias for your server in the DMZ?  (Altaddr command)

I've just done this and still not working. My Citrix Server is in the LAN, but it is set up as DMZ. The thing is that I can reach it over external IP address of the router, but only when I do it from this LAN. Client is working perfectly in that case, but whenever I move my laptop outside the LAN it cannot connect over the same external IP address.

Can you try and telnet to the IP of the server on port 1494?  If it works you should receive and ICA heartbeat.  I'm assuming it won't and that would tell me it is a Firewall/Routing issue.

I get a ICA heartbeat only when I connect to the external IP from the the LAN, otherwise it is not responding.

I have connected a server directly to the external IP address and I am getting ICA heartbeat from the telnet, but still there is no chance to browse published apps over the TCP/IP in the Program Neighborhood. Any ideas?

Ok, finally it started to work, but the problem is that I cannot keep that server connected directly to the external IP. It has to be running behind a router. Do you have any suggestions about the solution in that case? It has to be something with routing.

I tried to connect over HTTP and somehow it worked, then it started to work over TCP/IP aswell. Probably there was something with a routing table. I don't really know a reason, but now it works from the outside, even a server is behind a router and a firewall. I opened only crucial ports.
